Few hardy flowering plants have as much to offer as the pansy, viola, or violetta. Easily cultivated and very resistant to pests and diseases, they guarantee flowers from spring until autumn and are in many ways the ideal garden flowers. Pansies, Violas and Violettas covers every possible aspect of the subject, including the history and development of the garden pansy; the introduction of viola and violetta; techniques of propagation, cultivation, and exhibition; and raising new varieties. Together with a substantial descriptive list of named hybrid varieties, details of specialist nurseries, and superb color photographs, this is indeed a complete guide.
